Surnames: Nicholls James Lacey Darling
I am trying to find information on this family

Thomas Nicholls married 1861 Geelong Victoria to Jane Mary James...
Thomas and Janes son, Stephen James Nicholls was born 1860 Geelong married Edith Darling....
Stephen and Ediths son Stanley Charles Nicholls born 1906 Geelong married Louisa or Dorothy Lacey in 1927.
Stanley and Louisa had at least two children.
I am not sure where Thomas was born or when the family started out in Geelong.
Any help would be appreciated

Hi,
I would begin by getting the marriage certificate of Thomas & Jane James, this will tell you where they were both born. Most Likely in the UK Nicholls is most likely from Cornwall. You can get this certificate from www.justice.vic.gov.au for a small fee (you need a credit card) you can download it instantly.

If you already know who his parents were from his death entry, let me know and I will try and find where he is from.
They do not seem to be buried in Geelong.. but stephen James is buried with possibly his son and Edith is buried with possibly another son.

Do you know when Thomas & Jane died.

Debbie.

Thanks Debbie,
I have got the index for Thomas and Jane's marriage but it lists no parents.Would the actual certificate list them do you know?
I have found a Jane Nicholls buried in Geelong and thought it possible to be our Jane.She is buried with a Mary Jane Wrenwood.Thomas and Jane had a Mary Jane Christine Nichols(note spelling of surname) born 1864.There was a Jane Nicholls who married a Wrenwood in 1911.
I Thought maybe this is all connected.
As for the death of Thomas I have no idea.
